1. Manjrekar said SRH was looking like bottom of the table team at the auction just like Wasim jaffer and other 'experts'. I'll take anything these norm discussing experts with a grain of salt. Leaving out Ravi Sastri.

  2. These guys after the auction, praised MI for picking such team.
    Gaurav said "this team picks itself"

    For RCB, he said, picking a eleven itself is a problem.

  3. Let's not forget woh gujrati ki team hain aur paise kharch karne kae maamle mein no one can beat gujratiss..Unhonae future investment kiya jofra ko lekar and as usual they willl make them(their players ) match winners…Harr saal ek jaisa nhi hota hain.. According to me mumbai iss liye match nhi haar rhi hain kyunki unki squad achi nhi hain but issliye kyuki unke bade players perform nhi kar rhe..(Rohit, KP )..Manna thodi bowling weak hain aur luck bhi thoda khaarab chal rha hain kyuki punjab wala match wohh jeet sakte thae but 2 run outs costs the whole match…Agar kuch galt kiya hain mi or csk nae toh woh apni puraani team ko waapas baanane ke chakrr mein kuch players par hadd sae jyadaa purse khali kar diya ( Ishan and Deepak ).. Main yeh nhii keh rha ki yeh dono players value for money nhi hain but 1 or 2 players can't let you win all matches aur deepak toh injury kae karan bahar ho gaya aur inkae purae strategy ki lanka laagayie woh delhi waalae chacha nae faaltu ka daam badaa diya playerss ka which cost them their weak bowling line up…

  4. They don't have spinner bt they don't duy shamsi who is no 1 t20 bowler in last 2yrs aur adil rashid no 3 t20 bowler…Now they playing with 2 forren players..What a shame auction

  5. Worst team selection this auction…

    Also too bad playing 11 including thampi and m ashwin..

    Too much disappointed this year…

    Ishan retaining at tht price was biggest mistake…instead would have bought a overseas opener and a good bowler with 16 crore


  6. I don't know what happened to bumrah he just bowls yorkers and slower bowls whether he is bowling in powerplay or at the death he do not back his ability to move the ball at all that's why Indian team is also struggling to get wickets in powerplay.

  7. Surprised the so called experts didn't mention about the missing life in MI spin department. They are looking completely clueless in the middle overs because they don't have quality spinner who can contain runs or put pressure. All the successful teams have better spinners than them

  8. They missed the trick I guess by going for Ishan at so High, They could have got either Qdk and if not him then Jhonny Bairstow/bhanuka Rajapaksa and Mohammad Shami. They certainly would have got both of them around 13cr additional 2 & half crore for guys like Mustafizur Rahman /Kuldeep Yadav. This would have helped them to be better side than they're at the moment. Delhi Capitals were too wise to get 4 quality players David Warner, Mitch Marsh, Mustafizur Rahman and kuldeep who are all potential starter in any team of the world and all combined at 16.75 cr .
    1.25 cr more than they paid for Ishan kishan.

  9. brevis instead of tim was a too early call for me …also mills as well even through he wentfor 9 per over he was taking wickets atleast 2 permatch …which no other bowler was doing in the line up …. i defenitely think they should give chance to sanjay yadav in that side , he is a bit like krunal left arm spin and striking down the order as well…. next thing i think is tilak should bat at no 3 he is in touch so let him go early and settle himself surya can handle no 4 &5 postions easlily he is experienced …

  10. Next match team rohit, ishan, db, sky, t varma, pollard, j unatkad, murgan ashwin, tills, r meridian, j bhumra they only go with 6 batsman and 5 proper bowlers otherwise they can't defend 200+ against Punjab and any other team

  11. Stick with a team. Rohit Kishan Sky Tilak David Pollard Sanjay Meredith Mills Murugan Bumrah.
    Strengthen the bowling and put more onus on batsmen to do their jobs.

  12. I Believe MI is playing defensive cricket. They are thinking let’s get few more batsmen to score more to support the bowlers. They need to change there tactics. They need to attack from the bowling side. They have to attack with Bumrah in the power play instead of keeping him for the end. Also Bring Riley Meredith to support Bumrah in the power play. Maybe one of them can bowl 3 overs. Then bring Tymal Mills or Daniel Sams as the 3 fast bowler who can bowl in the middle and 1 over at the end with Brumah and Meredith. Since they don’t have any good spin option use Unakat as attacking bowler in the middle with Murigan Ashwin. Pollard and Tilak Verma can help with few overs if someone having bad day. Only then they can turn things around. Also they need to think of batting second so they know what is the target. That way Bowlers are restricting with attacking and batsmen are pacing an good innings. If they do all that only then they can think about winning some games and maybe qualify. Later during the tournament they can bring Fabian Alan and Mayank Markande into the 11 in place of 3rd fast bowler Tymal Mills/Daniel Sams and Unadkat to change the 11. So I recommend for now they need to go with:
    Rohit Sharma(c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Dewald Brevis, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard, Daniel Sams/Tymal Mills, Murugan Ashwin, Jaydev Unadkat, Jasprit Bumrah, Riley Meredith.
    Later during the tournament to increase Spin Options I recommend for they should go with:
    Rohit Sharma(c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Dewald Brevis, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard, Fabian Alan, Murugan Ashwin, Myank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah, Riley Meredith.

  13. I would prefer to wait a bit more. Out of two losses we have a Cummins blitz & a Chahal magic spell. I won't be surprised if Mumbai turn up the heat….. Just that they need to have a bit more patience with players…..

  14. Problem for mi csk is when they buy their players in past years their price was small and now price of that players is too big
    Like chahar and thakur in2018 or ishan and sky or rutu in 2020 but now they are match winnera so thats why they failed to retake their key playera like faf , qdk, shardul

  15. Cahar+ qdk+Trent Bolt+ krunal would have costed similar to Tim David+ Ishan+ Daniel sams and they could still get Archer it would have been almost same Mumbai core with Jofra making it extremely lethal.

  16. Mi ki strategy bahut acchi h ab agle saal unke paas sabse jayada purse hogo aur vo usse Ben stokes or sam curran me se ek ko le lenge fir unki team ko dekho unhone ek saal gavakar aane vale 3 saal ki sochi h

  17. What's really wrong is the batting depth. As a consequence, Kishan and Rohit are playing slow. They need to play more all rounders. And try to score big in every game, to cover up for the weak bowling.
